another stupid application of the label "terrorist"

Deborah Wolfe, a Canadian citizen who was just breast-feeding her son and changing his diaper while en route between Houston and Vancouver, says her "subversive" actions led to her being threatened with detainment, RCMP involvement and legal charges for terrorist action against a U.S. citizen in international airspace while on an American flight during a time of war. - by Lisa Fitterman

Basically, someone complained about her nursing and changing her baby in her seat to a flight attendant who, I guess, in turn blabbed to the pilot. The pilot announced that all mothers should change diapers in the plane's bathrooms, advice that the mother decided to ignore because she "found the change table too high, right above the toilet and with nary a restraint to stop an infant from falling." To me, that's an appropriate reason not to. Quite frankly, I'd like to find the guy who had complained and *THWAP* him upside the head a few times with a frozen trout.
